It wasn’t long ago that cleaning house looked like a good idea for the Dolphins.
But after winning three of their last four, there’s apparently a measure of security for the guy who put them together.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland “has received assurances” from owner Stephen Ross that his job was safe.
Ireland has been a popular whipping boy for Dolphins fans, and he spent Ross’s money this offseason like he was desperate to avoid firing.
But after the team has bounced back from the criticism that came with the early days of the Jonathan Martin–Richie Incognito bullying investigation to play well, some of the frustration with the direction of the team has subsided.
